The holiday season is in full swing and you are shopping for everyone on your list. But what about yourself? There is one gift of this holiday season that keeps on giving, and that’s a new water heater. If it’s been a while since you invested in a new water heater, now is a great time for water heater replacement in Chambersburg, PA.
Water heater technology has come a long way in the last decade with efficiency standards being higher and water heaters being generally more effective. You can keep reading to learn more about why a water heater might be a good gift for your family this holiday season, even if you can’t wrap it up and put it under the tree.
You may think that water heaters from 10-15 years ago were not all that different from the water heaters we are installing today. But this is simply not true. Water heater technology has grown leaps and bounds in the last decade and water heaters today are much more energy efficient.
You now have a greater variety of water heaters available so you can select the just-right one for your home and family. If it’s important to you to have a highly efficient water heater, it’s much easier to find one now than it was 10 years ago. Plus there are standardized efficiency ratings that can help you understand the difference between different types and sizes of water heater.
A new water heater is also going to elevate the comfort in your home. Even if you got a top-of-the-line water heater when it was first installed, there’s a good chance that it is now aged and outdated. If your water heater is at least 10 years old, it’s time to begin thinking about installing a new model. And newer models are not just energy efficient, they are also more effective at heating water and moving the water into your home.
Stay Ahead of a Breakdown
Water heaters only last an average of 8-15 years depending on what type of water heater you have and how well it has been maintained. The general rule of thumb is that if your water heater is at least 10 years old, it’s time to begin considering a replacement.
Our team can even take a look at your water heater and let you know if it’s time for a replacement or if you have some life left in your existing unit. If you’re not quite ready to invest in a new model yet, we may be able to help get your water heater through the next winter season so you can make plans to upgrade sometime next year.
Either way, you do want to have your water heater maintained if you have not already this year. That’s the best way to stay ahead of a breakdown. Many times water heater problems are quiet and less obvious. You may not even know something is wrong until your water heater stops working completely.
